How To Execute Script On Browser Close Event


I would like to update the status of users of my site. I am not getting any clue as to how execute a script on close event of the browser.

I have tried one thing that is I have used to call popup to execute it on unload of the page. there are 2 problems that window.open() is not working firefox and also I have to make the changes to more than 100's of pages.

So Please if anyone has Idea or can help me It will be aprreciable.

Thanks for all your support

Hi Hemal.

There is no reliable way of capturing when the user leaves your page or closes his browser. My advice would be to design your web so that it does not need to rely on such things.

If it is possible, it would be some sort of JavaScript, so I'm going to move this thread over to the JavaScript forums, where the JavaScript experts are more likely to find it.

What does the script do? There may be an alternative.

You could use onbeforeunload, but it's not supported in Opera.
